Closes 31 Jul 2024

Opened 5 Jul 2024

Overview

Thank you for your interest in our proposals for an Experimental Prohibition of Heavy Goods Vehicles in Weybridge.

Introduction

Surrey County Council proposes to install an experimental 18t environmental weight restriction on a number of roads in Weybridge. 

Following concerns raised by residents, a petition relating to HGV’s on Brooklands Road was presented to the Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Economic Growth on 30 January 2024.  Please see details at:

Cabinet Member for Highways, Transport and Economic Growth Decisions - Tuesday, 30 January 2024 10.30 am

The response to the petition was that an informal consultation will be carried out, which is the subject of this exercise.  

 

Proposed HGV prohibition

In response to concerns raised by residents the proposals are for an experimental 18t environmental weight restriction on a number of roads in Weybridge.  These concerns are regarding the unsuitability and safety of heavy commercial vehicles travelling on particular roads in Weybridge and where the passing of this type of traffic has a detrimental effect to residents living along the route.  Alternative routes are considered to exist that are more appropriate to carry heavy commercial vehicles. 

To provide sufficient opportunity for any vehicle over 18t to turn around before reaching the restriction various side roads leading to the route have had to be included within the proposed restriction. Therefore, the extents of the proposed restriction are shown on the plan linked below and include the following roads:

(a) Brooklands Road (B374) from its junction with Wellington Way (D3912) to its junction with Heath Road (B374) and Hanger Hill (B373)

(b) Heath Road (B374)

(c) Church Street (B374) from Heath Road (B374) to its junction with Balfour Road (A317)

(d) Hanger Hill (B373)

(e) St George’s Avenue (B372)

(f) Egerton Road (D3907)

(g) Gower Road (D3905)

(h) Cavendish Road (D3908)

(i) Old Avenue (D3910)

(j) Ellesmere Road (D3906)

The 18t environmental weight restriction would apply to any vehicle over 18t (except buses) and means that any such vehicle must not use or travel through the affected roads, unless they have legitimate business in the area such as deliveries or collections. 

The restriction would be operational at all times.
